Discuss your comic collection here.

Yesterday I accidently deleted a comment from Mr Xenomurphy – Sorry Xeno ;). He mentioned that he used to swap his Spidey and FF comics with his friends. Unfortunately some of these comics have now been lost forever. Just like his comment ;)

Have you got a comic collection? If so what, where, who and how?

I will start off. As a kid my mum would not buy me comics (boo hoo) but I managed to get hold of a few Judge Dredd ones from friends. I also loved to watch as many telebox programmes as I could. Does anyone remember the original Spiderman, Captain America and the hilarious Batman & Robin? Pow Wack Wallop!!

As a teenager I lost a little bit of interest but I did buy a few first edition Wolverine and Punisher comics. Not the original comics but the new ones released in the mid to late 90s. They are tucked away in the attic somewhere collecting dust, and hopefully a bit of value.

You can probably tell I am a fan of the darker characters from the SuperHero world. For some reason I like the heroes that have been twisted by ‘demons’ in their past.

I would love to hear about your collections.

Unfortunately, where I live, Comic books are hard to come by. Strange, considering we live in a modernish town.

My dad used to tell me, he and friends would hide their comic books in textbooks, so it would look like they were "studying"

I hope you don't need this information in order to steal the best collection, haha.

I literally grew up with comics, since my 7 years older brother used to read them when I was born. Lots of French/Belgium comics (Asterix, Tintin, Spirou, ...), German comics (Fix & Foxi, Yps, ...), Disney and of course, Marvel and DC comics.
I still have some of them.

I stoped buying new ones when I grew older, but always reread the old ones.
Then, in the early 90s, a renaissance of superhero comics occurred. My interest in comics grew when I saw Todd McFarlane's work and I started to collect again. This time with polybags to protect them and everything. And I bought all the first editions of all Image series, at least issues 1 to 10 (and of course more from some series, like Spawn, Savage Dragon, Gen 13, ...).
Then I lost interest again in 1995.

And now, after some really good movies and TLC's announcement of the new Marvel sets, my interest grew back.

Hahaha. That is a very good idea ;) I love Asterix and Tintin. Never heard of Fix & Foxi. Sounds like one of those DIY programmes hosted by an attractive blonde ;)

Unfortunately I didn’t really have a lot of comics but always watched as many films and cartoons as possible. I still watch as many films as I can. What I am particularly interested in is the imagery and art work, and how different artists draw the characters.

Can’t wait for the new marvel sets.

Now where is that delete button ;)

I'm not really interested in Superhero comics but I do have a large collection of Transformers graphic novels which each feature an entire series of the comics from the 80's. My favourite line from all of them has to be "Now, Soundwave, you're going to have travel through time. All the way to the distant year of: 2008!" ;)
My brother on the other hand, has about 500 Marvel comics and about 50 Graphic Novels :O

I've been collecting Punisher comics for as long as I can remember. Those are the only comics I have set aside for me at my local comic shop. I used to collect Transformers, Ghost Rider, and Army of Darkness comics but money has gotten tight in the past couple years.

As a kid I didn't have such a big comic collection, but our public library had a big "Tintin" and "Lucky Luke" collection which I really liked. Also my father has always had a complete "Asterix" collection, he usually bought the new issue on the first day. So I was allowed to read them, too, but really carefully as they were like Daddy's treasure.

I started collecting comics when I started my studies at the university. I have a loose collection of "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" comics which were the first I bought.

I'm also a big "Dragonball" fan. When the Mangamania started in Germany I bought the whole original series (about 40 issues). But I haven't found any Manga series which I liked as much as "Dragonball" so I haven't bought many more of these.

And I'm a big "comic noir" fan, starting with the amazing "Sin City" series by Frank Miller. Later I discovered the "Torpedo" series by Enrique Sánchez Abulí which is about a bad a** Mafia Killer in the 1930s New York.

I also became a great fan of graphic novels and I always keep my eyes open in book stores and at Amazon to find something new.

Yeah, by the name it could also be a soap opera on an erotic channel... ;-))

But it's completely harmless. Fix and Foxi is a German comic series which was published weekly in small magazines similar to the Micky Mouse series. Fix and Foxi are twin fox brothers and the main characters of the series.

For more information, there is even a small Wikipedia article in English: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fix_and_Foxi
